Because you're literate and seem to be able to combine competent thoughts into coherent sentences, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that your absolutely outrageous claims are mere jokes, and that the sarcasm doesn't translate over the internet.

In that case,

There is no way Mason folds up and goes home. He is probably the toughest player I have ever seen on the field. He played the end of the season completely banged up and was a powerhouse in a game where he played the second half literally with only 1 arm! Honestly, it is not like him to malinger to the end. If he says he is back, he is back!

I have no doubt Mason will give it his all as he always has on the field. Hines is the same way - can't keep a total teamer down.

The beauty of all this is that we shall truly see in just a few weeks.

No disrespect to Mason, but when a guy wants to quit and is lured back in, I just don't think he's going to have his head 100% in the game...just like Favre last year. I AM certainly glad that I cheer for a team that doesn't have to pin a bunch of it's hopes onto one over-the-hill WR who has one eye on his pension, though...

Fixed that for you.

Give me a break. . .

Need I remind you that, no matter how close the games, and whatever excuses you want to make, the Steelers STILL beat the Rats 3 times last year.

Aren't you also the same nincompoop who said Clark is no threat to old man Mason?

Did you watch the video? Clark knocked Mcgehee the eff out, a big strong RB who HAS his head on a swivel and was 100% IN THE game.

Mason is a smart guy...he won't even be accidentally drifting over the middle this year unless it's as a decoy. His pension beckons...

So how could that possibly be said for your line and not our receivers?

I can post videos of our linebackers jacking up your quarterback, but that doesn't lead me to the conclusion that Ben will be hesitant next season and be content after a Super Bowl victory.
